The Fiji Roads Authority confirms the China Railway Fifth Group has been awarded the maintenance contract for the Central Division.
Chief Executive Jonathan Moore says the Central and Northern contracts started in 2013 with Fulton Hogan Hiways for over a four year period.
He says they granted an extension for one year while they organized for new contract for the Central Division.
Moore adds they had issued a tender for the contractors to put a price for their work and the contractors submitted their tenders.
He adds they assess tenders based on factors such as the capacity of the contractor, quality of work, contractor’s ability to understand the work required and pricing.
He says CR5G offered a more competitive and a better value offer than FHH.
Moore says the amount of work that they are planning to do in the future would be more than what they were currently doing which would require more people.
He adds all of those workers that are currently working under FHH whether directly or as a subcontractor would still be working on our roads.
